My research themes relate to sports leisure and especially mountain sports. My theoretical approaches are in the field of social psychology and are articulated around the concept of social representations and territorial behaviors.
Beyond a general objective of understanding the social uses of the mountain, my work contributes to the analysis of the sport risks and to the understanding of the risk to the practitioners.
My current research concerns the analysis of representations and behaviors in snowpark (project financed by the MAIF Foundation) and the study of accidents related to mountain sports, and in particular the practice of ski touring (project funded by The PETZL Foundation).
